    Just think of all those jobs China would have lost if the US tax payer didn't give GM billions.

    he rich with insider knowledge are moving to those places, like James Cameron. The globalists that will set up the new government with a new constitution will set up the new capital in Colorado after the next major war is over.

    He mostly talks about a war with China. Some place in Utah is the best because its very far from all cities and all the refugees that are looking for food and shelter would never be able to make the trek to this place.

    I am glad our tax dollars which are actually monies borrowed from the chinks are going back over there to make cars

    maybe chrysler can do something like this too

    my last GM is a 64 GMC pickup in my driveway

    never again do I buy one

    Sounds like they're building cars in China to *gasp* sell in China. Can't say I blame them, either.

    I don't either, its the American people that are idiots for supporting politicians that hand out trillions to banks and corporations and then complain when those same politicians want to raise their taxes to pay for the corporate welfare. I can't blame Buffett either for trying to get taxes raised so he can get more in corporate bailouts.

    Ford in China out classes the home grown Chinese auto makers. It has gotten so bad that China has limited and pretty much stopped the sale of foreign cars there. It's not our fault that China makes shitty cars.

    not seeing the problem with this... most global auto makers have plants in the countries where their big markets are.

    hopefully GM will sell the hell out of Caddies in China. Sell the cars there, bring the profits here.

    Well a lot of the bits of that car are made in China anyway... wonder if the bits that were made in the US will continue to be made in the US.

    I can't stand the buy American people. It's like they have no idea there's a lot more it than where it was assembled. I drive a jap truck built in Canada and according to that link it's more American than most "American trucks"

    Yep my Jap truck was assembled in Mississippi (50% of the parts are made in the US)... was going to get an F150 but the sales guy I dealt with at the local dealer was a douche.

    Made in America: How Much of Your Car was Made in America.


    Oh and the Cadillac SRX only had 21% made in the US.

    I've seen this before, and thought it was what you posted earlier. According to that link The Toyota Tundra is the most American truck you can buy at 80% domestic. My Ridgeline comes in at 75% but mine is an 08 and made in Canada, they moved it to Alabama for 09. The big 3 trucks are all about 60%

    Ya my buddy sources tooling for the automotive industry... says he can get 2 or 3 molds done there for the cost of having one done here. Even with the quality difference... if one craps out you have two spares.

    He went to some tooling factory (really a campus) in central China that employed like 5,000 nine irons. Each one of them was designated to do one task and one task only. Their CAD room had like 200 guys in it designing molds and shit.
